8. Meeting Location of our Monthly Meetings
It was reported that Blackjack’s facility in Nisku is still a possibility for Monthly Meetings.
Clarence Shields is putting together a deal to have an American-style Truck-stop. He said Americans would like Blackjack’s and not have to come into the City of Edmonton. Clarence said he would advertise our presence at future monthly meetings if we change the location to Blackjack’s. Blackjack’s are eager to have us meet at their premises in Nisku. And have indicated
That they will assist us with “whatever” if needed.
A Motion was then to hold our August Meeting at Blackjack’s in Nisku, and to hold all future monthly meetings at Blackjack’s if things warrant this. This Motion passed with only one objection.
Jim Kennedy noted that he was now officially Retired from his full-time job with EPCOR. CONGRATS JIM !!!
He also said not to forget our August barbecue. Everyone should bring some food and it is open to all members and their friends and families. Brian Cherneske said that letters should be sent to all persons who want to invite friends so that they could use them to send to the invitees. This may cause problems so the membership has requested that only Paid members & their families could attend. Note: The annual Club’s 1/64 scale electronic drag races will be held also. Bring your Hot Wheels, Johnny Lightning or Matchbox cars.. Entry fee is $5.00 per persons & there are 4 classes..
